When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the Victory Dr / S Lumpkin Rd
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 97.4% of the neighborhoods
Also of note, 75.1% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
In addition, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Victory Dr / S Lumpkin Rd neighborhood about it; they already know. 20.5%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.5%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
Also, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 94.7%
of the adult residents in the Victory Dr / S Lumpkin Rd neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 95.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Victory Dr / S Lumpkin Rd
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 97.6% of all American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the Victory Dr / S Lumpkin Rd neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
95.4% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 87.1% of the real estate in the Victory Dr / S Lumpkin Rd neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The Victory Dr / S Lumpkin Rd neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood.
